business successFor the past year, survival has been the primary and only focus for many bike shops as the retail landscape shifts.

But, are you looking to develop and grow your business?

There are benefits that come with business expansion including the increase in customer reach, sales and profits. Of course, there are downfalls to expanding surrounding a lack of funding and the question of whether or not it is the best time to expand.

With more and more issues arising around climate change and the heightened interest the news and press have taken in reporting on climate change, cycling has become a more popular method of commuting with more than two million people across the UK cycling once a week.

Business finance expert Emily Relph explores the multitude of funding options out there for businesses looking to expand.

  • Invoice finance
  • Crowdfunding
  • Stock finance
  • Commercial mortgages
  • Traditional bank loan
  • Credit cards

There are so many different funding options out there for businesses looking to expand. Each with pros and cons of their own and some more suited to a specific business's needs than others.

The key take away from this is that there are more options out there for businesses and increased funding could be the answer for some businesses looking to expand and achieve business goals.
